Narendra Modi oath ceremony: Who will attend event amid ‘Neighbourhood First’ push? 

Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi will take oath of office on Sunday in the national capital in the presence of a host of foreign dignitaries, including the heads of several neighbouring countries. He is expected to meet these visiting foreign leaders the next day.

Maldives president Mohamed Muizzu, whose apparent China-tilt strained the country's relation with India, might also attend the grand event.

Muizzu will likely leave for New Delhi on Saturday for the ceremony, along with several senior Maldives government officials.

The heads of governments of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal, Mauritius and Seychelles are among the neighbours who have been invited for Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony.

Among them, Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina, Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe and Nepal PM Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda have confirmed their presence.

Dahal and Ranil Wickremesinghe will arrive in Delhi on June 9. PM Hasina is likely to fly to Delhi today.

Dahal and PM Modi spoke with each other via phone, when the former confirmed his attendance, reported ANI.
